"kaiser permanente" Discussed on The Marketing Minute

"Grace what story would you like to share for marketing communicators. Why it's funny one You know we. I connected that. Literally that day a childhood memory had popped in my mind and this is a situation when i was about seven or eight. I had the opportunity to take free a free swimming lesson. I think the the overall goal was to get parents to sign up for a package of lessons. But my parents didn't do that. Only got to take that one free lessons so that day. I learned how to blow bubbles and swim underwater so six months to a year after that. I got invited birthday party at a swim club and everything was going while. I am in the shallow and the water splashing it up. We're having fun money. One of my friends decided that they wanted to go. Jump off the diving board. And for whatever reason. I decided to follow them and decided that yes. I too could jump off the diving board so i go right up i line up alongside everybody else. I climb up the ladder. And i jumped and have to tell you that i had no idea how deep that water was because i froze when i realize that my feet weren't touching the bottom. I was terrified. I had no idea how long i could hold my breath for and just completely. My whole body for rosen. And just i'm sinking and sinking and sinking and finally i hear this voice. Whether it's own way soros my friends voice. I hear swim. So i started kicking my legs in moving my arms and eventually got to the side of the pool and i pulled myself out and i imagine me shaky myself and telling my friends. Oh i mentioned to you that i wanted to see how long i put my pro and i walked right back to the ladder. Climbed up again. And i jumped to kind and i probably jumped off. Ivan board At least while times at day. But i still to this day. Remember how terrified i was when i hit the water and realize oh. You're not kansas anymore kind of situation. Well yes that sounds impactful. Sounds like the kind of thing both dreams and nightmares are made of. That's really cool. What insights do you derive for marketing. Communications professionals. I don't know what prompted me to set me. Have that memory pop into my mind. One of the things that i was contemplating about is these days before we take action before we act. We want to know everything we want to know. The ins and outs of an experience before we move forward. We want to look at the data. We want to analyze the data capture. More data analyzed the new data and then once we have all the data together we want to pull together focus group and we want to see what they think about the data and go back and collect more. Trust me that's good. That's best practice. We live in an era where we're data rich society and we absolutely should take advantage of the data that we have but sometimes you just need to jump and it can be terrifying because we don't know what the expected outcome is. We don't know what the future is. But it's better than not opting at that time. You just have to trust your sex and trust you. Have the appropriate skill sets to do what you need to do and by jumping you realize that you can open up possibilities that you never thought existed before that day. When i was at that swimming pool. I had so much fun. So you know. I have this memory of being terrified memory of fear and i also remember the joy i hide out my jumped in that water and i ended up being faster and better every time i jumped in love. It one of my favorite things about that story is i keep period. You say swim. You can imagine what a finding nemo part in there. Ellen just says just keep swimming. I say that all the time in my head and again when i get that memory i wondered got. No wonder i liked that so much rights when things get hard square. Why do you do what you do talking specifically about my current role at kaiser permanent day this is one example of the many jumps that i've taken. I didn't necessarily have a long list of experience particularly in healthcare. But i knew account management. I knew business development And knew how to lead a team. And what's exciting about being able to do all that. I do at a company. Kaiser permanente it's a company that lives this mission that we don't just hang on the wall and you know use it. They're just just to have words Laying on an age we actually focus everything that we do all of our decision making tied around our objective of providing affordable high quality care to our members and improving the health of numbers and the communities that we serve in our decision as predicated on healthcare in general can be a little slow too. So i'd like to think that the reason why. I'm here is to help kaiser permanente leap forward and be the best at getting better. My name is grace mcdermott. And this is the market minute..

Los Angeles County Shatters COVID-19 Case, Death, Hospitalization Records

"With ICU space at crisis levels in some population centers. The start of vaccine distribution this week gave everyone a desperately needed dose of good news. California Governor Gavin Newsom embraced that, while also warning that the nation's most populous state is struggling with the viruses Deadliest wave yet. Light at the end of the tunnel. But we're still in the tunnel. Southern California and the state's Central Valley are reeling less than 2% of ICU beds There are available and many hospitals are overwhelmed. Already this week, single day death records have been broken in San Diego, Santa Clara and Los Angeles County. L. A on Wednesday hit a record daily high of 131 covert 19 deaths. Barbara for Air is the county's public health director. Every hour on average, two of our neighbors, family members and friends. Are dying from Cove in 19. And the virus is rampant in all neighborhoods. Key parts of the state are now in surge mode and opening makeshift hospital areas. But many don't have the staff to manage the extra load, and the state has limited options to try to fix that staffing crisis. Slammed. Hospitals are using emergency rooms to house critical patients, and many are postponing elective surgeries and repositioning surgeons and nurses. Dr. Steven Proteus, an executive vice president with Kaiser Permanente, which in the last two weeks has seen hospitalization rates rise, nearly 40%. There were actually taking all the different hands we have on deck. And moving them to where they're needed most, which is right now in our hospitals and emergency department, and some hospitals are boosting the number of ICU patients that nurses treat at one time in Fresno County, for example, that means ICU, nurses will have to add a third critical patient to their workload. Move, Fresno AMs, Director Dan Lynch concedes means additional strain on already exhausted staff. It's a temporary fix, and it does impact those health care workers with You're taking care of a very critical, very complicated case in the ICU, and now you've got three of them. Lynch says the county is also adding another temporary fix quick training nurses to work in ICUs. Crisis even saw Governor Newsome this week once again make a plea to recently retired healthcare professionals to consider returning now will provide supports in terms of hotel rooms and transportation and Trying to wave his many of the fees and related costs associated with getting you back into the workforce on a temporary basis to help us through this very difficult time.

Climate Neutral's Austin Whitman Discusses Industry Efforts to Go Green

"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast I'm the host David Entra Cosso. During this podcast discussed with Austin Whitman, CEO of climate neutral industry efforts to go green or achieve carb climate neutral rather status Mr. Whitman. Welcome to the program. Thanks David it's crispy here. I very much welcome Mr Whitman's BIOS across posted on the podcast website on background collectively termed sub nationals, numerous academic institution states, cities, and local governments, companies NGOs, and other enemies across the country have pledged to become climate neutral. Journey this means that our greenhouse gas emissions our carbon footprint are completely offset by consuming or funding renewable energy resources and or funding reforestation or other carbon sequestration efforts. Though the healthcare benefits of reducing carbon emissions are crystal clear as I'm not previously be of this podcast healthcare providers in federal industry regulators are climate nihilists. They have been some ignored this issue despite the fact after the food industry healthcare is the largest amount of carbon dioxide equivalent. It over six, hundred, fifty, million metric tons annually or approximately ten percent of the US greenhouse gas emissions. As I've noted previously per research published in plus one four years ago, Mount Sinai research concluded. Health harm caused by the healthcare industries carbon emissions causes upwards of ninety, eight, thousand deaths per year just in the US. In addition, the US healthcare industry substantially lags behind other prominent US industries in publicly reporting their carbon emissions. Two weeks ago however Kaiser Permanente, the US's largest integrated nonprofit healthcare provider, and now it had achieved carbon neutral status. Meeting the organization had a raised as eight hundred, thousand tonne carbon footprint. Or Eight, hundred, thousand tons emitted annually. As. Kaiser noted in his nine fourteen press release quote unquote as physicians climate changes absolutely in our lane. Kaiser's the first healthcare system in the US to achieve status and listeners may recall interviewed Kaiser's Kathy Gerwig. Regarding her own. Climate. Neutral efforts in. May of Twenty nineteen. With me again to discuss corporate efforts to go green is climate neutral CEO Austin Whitman. So. Awesome of that as background, let me begin by asking you if you could provide a brief overview of your organization. Yeah well. Great, David I love that background because what you've done is I think shown a spotlight on something that needs to change and we hope it will change in the sense that climate is an overarching challenge that for anyone not to see it as their challenge. Is really mistake and one of the encouraging signs that I've seen in the last few years is that more and more people are taking note of the challenge and really picking it up as something that they've got to think about in their in their day to day climate. Neutral. we started a year and a half ago really with the basic sort of with basic problem in line to which is that consumer pick up any consumer on the street and them what they've been told to do To help, reverse or address climate change and people will probably tell you. Well, I know that I should stop eating meat and I know that I drive an electric car and I know that I should fly less. And maybe some other things too and one of the interesting things is if you if you think about those three, are you eating meat is pretty obvious when you pick up before you can say You know I'm eating a steak where I'm eating a banana driving cars pretty obvious and are you flying is pretty obvious as well, and and unfortunately those those three things only address a small chunk of the total carbon that each of us is responsible for, and that's because all the things the objects that we rely on day to day are the product of a fossil fuel intensive production chain or value chain, which we call kind of a carbon trail that stretches around the world. and. So the best the best idea we could come up with to deal with this is to create a label just like a USDA organic label that would indicate to consumer the climate impacts of something that they buy. So we can sort of turn the money that people spend on stuff. When it's not obvious like a, you know a steak versus a banana when it's not obvious what the climate impacts of something that they buy are we can. We can put a label on it that says, you know did the company that made that thing measure it's carbon emissions. Carbon that they were responsible for frowned producing that thing and bringing it to the customer, and then did they take steps to offset that carbon offset also known as remove or purchase a carbon? And we can get into those technical details at some point is you want And then are they working on plans to reduce their carbon emissions? So this is sort of the the basic designation that we came up with and the label launched officially in June of last year, we recruited about one hundred forty companies to get certified. which was going to happen from January to April of this year with the pandemic I feared the worst but actually turned out to be the best we ended up getting one hundred and fifty companies certified by the end of it so. One of the things we learned from that was yes, there's a pandemic if anything it has sort of reinforced the idea that there's a shared vulnerability across all of us that we really need to. You know we really need to to get together and figure out in the cases cove. It's obvious. It's public health flying in the case of climate. It's obvious. It's environmental one so. We certified one hundred fifty brands were now in the midst of recruiting more companies to get certified for. Twenty Twenty I. Guess The final detail I would add would be were restructured a nonprofit and Mission is simply to decrease global carbon emissions and to engage consumers brands to make that happen.

Online therapy is thriving now, but can it remain viable?

"If you've ever been in the market for a new therapist, you know the drill I ask your doctor or a trusted friend for some recommendations next search online to verify they take your health insurance. Then when you finally find someone hope that there is don't get wide with horror once you start talking about your childhood otherwise he gets weird and you have to start the process all over again. But like most things. These days a combination of technology and covid nineteen have disrupted mental healthcare. Only this time that disruption may have actually made things better now that in-person counseling is largely lockdown online therapy. APPS. With their simplified pipelines and virtual options are looking more appealing than ever in May popular option talk space told The Washington Post that it's volume was up sixty five percent since the beginning of the pandemic rival better help told Mashal the business has doubled during the shutdown and that more than ten thousand people per day sign up for it service. Deciding which services right for you depends on what you're looking for better help offers unlimited therapy sessions while talk spaces offerings while not unlimited include psychiatric help in addition to traditional talk therapy, the online therapy landscape has changed significantly from the beginning of the year in March. The federal government issued waivers allowing insurance programs like Medicare and Medicaid to cover telehealth services for a variety of treatments including for mental health care and many private insurers lined up to allow coverage to the combination of lower cost online therapy sessions, and. Expanded Insurance Coverage helped more people afford the help they needed during an anxious time but success is not without its obstacles. The companies that create these APPS aren't just altruistic healthcare providers. Their tech companies to that means they need to be able to scale their software for growth and they need to do it fast for that they need funding talk spaces raised one, hundred, ten, million dollars to fuel its growth better help was acquired by Telemedicine Tele Doc in twenty fifteen even so each company is facing some growing pains. First, there's the issue of the industry's uncertain future. The relaxed regulations in Medicare waivers that allowed this growth may not be long-term wants the pandemic has passed will the regulations remain in place maybe Maybe, not the other issue is finding enough therapists to keep up with demand. Each platform is actively recruiting mental health professionals through its website and employment advertising. But the hiring bar is high therapists must be licensed in their state and have at least three years of experience. They're paid as independent contractors by the platform verge reports and the competition is tough. There are dozens of online therapy. APPS now, competitor Ginger has raised one hundred, twenty million in its latest round of funding secured in August CIGNA ventures. In Kaiser, permanente ventures both participated giving the startup, some important insurance and healthcare provider muscle in the Mex- online therapy does make mental health care more affordable and accessible, but questions remain about how the highly regulated world of Healthcare Meshes with the grow grow world of technology companies. One thing is certain demand for mental health care is only growing between the pandemic, the recession social unrest in a slew of natural disasters. Now, there's plenty of anxiety around.

"We're honored to have. Dr Howard J foam and join us to catch up on medicine, practice and politics prevention, and of course a bit about our fight against. COVID nineteen so may we suggest that you pull yourself a double. Sit back and join us on medicine. We're still practicing I'm bill, Curtis. I are host. The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you. We haven't had dinner together for a while I. Don't remember what it was like. They actually have dinner and enjoy an evening. So you know we have one of our favorite experts rejoining. Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of.

Is Telemedicine the Future of Medicine?

"I have to be perfectly honest. When I was first talking with Lucy and she said we really should do something on telemedicine and the future of medicine I just thought well. We look at work and care issues. We look at family as shoes gender equality equity across racing classes well. What does telemedicine have to deal with any of this? So let me turn it over to you Amanda and make the case. Why is this so critical for equity and work in? In Care Systems, this is a subject that is berry near, and dear to my heart. Both someone is committed to racial justice, and in particular with in the area of medicine and shrinking health disparities. It's my body of work, so what I'm doing is trying to redesign prenatal care for as a permanent in northern California where we deliver forty five thousand babies a year, so it's exciting we try to have. What are they? Cow Path moments in private and I'd like to think of this as one of them. Because we have to do more virtual care, prenatal care particular in women's health in general is a time when people come into the office a lot, so we have to ask ourselves what can be done remotely? What can't be done? And what are the factors that are impacting women's ability to have those appointments do they have broadband high speed Internet at their house. Do they have smartphones? do they have any place private to talk about? Their issues were very concerned about family violence, child abuse Yeah, in this era, also so there could be the risk associated with tele-medicine. Flip side there can be huge benefits. People don't have to take time off of work. They don't have to come in and commute and park. They don't have to find child care for their children. Even though China work and care of your children, your doctor of the same kind of tough, but we don't know which way this is point because we have to be really conscious every step of the way we're designing our care delivery in the telehealth space. What is the impact to be on a marginalized patients and the race and ethnic divide you staying with you Amanda? What do we know I? Mean it's it's. It's it's still a fairly new kind of thing right. So what do we know about how it impacts equity or patient, care or working family systems? Do we know much about it, or is it still so new? We don't know a whole lot yet. What we don't know a whole lot yet and in particular we don't know much about the race ethnicity side inside of Kaiser Permanente because we're closed system what we will know a lot because we do have that demographic data about our patients, and then in the maternal house based. We have no babies being born yet because this is all very new. So we don't know about our longer term. Outcomes with the key is as we're doing this design because Kobe is not going away tomorrow, we're going to really have to think about these systems. We have to keep that consciousness around. What is this point? Do in terms of Eray. So, let me turn to you, Lucy. This is something that we've had really some very interesting discussions about, and you've also had some incredibly intense experiences around telehealth and telemedicine during the pandemic, and not just around physical health, but also mental health. Can you talk a little bit more about that? Yes, as you know and many of your listeners now this is a mental health crisis as As, much as it is a physical health, prices Americans are suffering collectively with grief and loss and trauma to varying degrees, and so because our mental health effects, not only how he'll day today, but it directly affects medical outcomes. There's no shortage of data the show that are motion health, and our behavioral health, and of course, layered on top of that a social determinants of health. Effects are medical albums in very real ways. It's essential that primary care. Doctors and doctors in general understand that intersection. And for many people in the pandemic for my musicians. telehealth lifeline. Has as Dr, Williams said, it's not a panacea, not everyone has access to a smartphone or Internet access, but for people who need support physically and mentally is offered a new avenue. I think it's going to be here to stay. I don't think it's ever going to replace individual. One on one faced base care, and actually as Dr. Williams and I know the foundation of my work rotations the relationship, the relationship between patient is crucial, and so that is not going be replaced by virtual care hover. augments existing care for example I have a patient who lost her husband to Kobe during the pandemic. have been able to have the end of conversation. I did with that family from their home. Pre pandemic, because now we have these virtual platforms address. How are loosening regulations allowed visits to be paid for similar to what they would be in person, and then this patient of mine who is going through natural wraith and trauma, losing her husband on top of the pandemic, if able to for the first one axles agreed counselor remotely, and that is something that is not only important for her to. Feeling, but it's it's going to directly affect your medical outcomes, and that is what gives me hope for our future, we. What was that conversation like? You know a pre covert? How would that have gone? And how did that change? Or how was that? I was at different having to having to have such a such an intimate conversation over a kind of a technology platform. Well, it is interesting I mean first of all the patient who is at the end of his life could not have made it physically into my office. But I was able to have an hour long conversation with him on a virtual platform, and his family surrounded by his bedside and talk about very important decision making that pre pandemic. Wouldn't have been covered by insurance now. I probably would have had that conversation anyway, but you know doctors to get paid for their services and mental health providers need to get paid for their service and free. Corona virus insurance wouldn't reimburse for care wasn't face to face and for new incremental health issues. You had to have little morbidity so in other words. If you had an addiction I, Can Apple Addiction? Your therapists would only get paid if you also had diabetes. Those things need to change this change here on out. So I want to get to you in a minute, but Amanda if I can go back to you. Let's stay with that systems question. We've had this technology. You know we've had kind of the ability to connect virtually for some time, so has it really been an insurance issue that this hasn't really taken off before now well I will take a step back and say that I. Do work inside of Kaiser Permanent Day and so our. Models are different than in most of the fee for service. World but. Yes, part of the story is reimbursement, and then it's also familiarity and comfort both on a addition signed, and also on the issue as McBride knives off the about with existing patients people who you know, people, you have a relationship. The transition to virtual visits has been very smooth but for new patients. It's a little harder to make that connection nipping. That's why video is critically important because you'd get to see people's faces, you get to see their is. is their expressions actually highly suspected clamps? Yes, beer location of end of pregnancy on a video visit because I saw other, the pieces face was very swollen Oh. Wow, and it made me wonder you know. What is your blood pressure? What is going on about this fluid retention and so I brought her into the hospital for assessment when I was just doing a video visit at home. Wow, no Medicare has recently just said that they will start now, reimbursing or video. And so that's a big pair for us and for much of the country, and so I think that will helped shift the perspective, and then people are using it for their work. So as folks are more comfortable using distance work in general, they can then apply that with their health is now

"Welcome back to the podcast today. Have the privilege of. Even these Andino, she is an Afro Latino Health Equity innovator born and raised in the Bronx and the founder and CEO of radical health at least enjoyed a fledgling career in health tech pioneering, some of its first digital health solutions, including bringing the first mobile APP prescribing platform to the market and working with global clients, such as the N., H. S. in London and Kaiser Permanente while she routinely trained oncologist on new drugs. She found herself unprepared when her mother was diagnosed with cancer this I heard directly and intimately confront the systemic healthcare despair she knew existed in founding radical health. The first Latina owned and operated benefit Corp in New York City. She has sought to combine her expertise in healthcare and her passion as a community organizer, coming from an historically marginalized community herself. It was important for valise to initially build radical health by bringing together her neighbors around her kitchen table and hearing firsthand from voices, including undocumented women of color, elderly young people and the Lgbtq community who are. Figuratively, and literally never given a seat at the table to have a say in their own healthcare destiny through radical help you've is committed to the task of transforming healthcare by facilitating health literacy and self advocacy as well as or Djing a relationship between meaningful to face conversations with cutting edge technology, so you know the teams of access and making health care equality. Equality is something that continues to come up. We touch on topics like social determinants of health and I think we're GONNA be at a cross section of a lot of these hot topics today with the release, and so with that I want to give her a warm welcome, so glad you're here. Thank you so much for having me it really the pleasure so. What did I leave out of your intro that you wanNA share with the listeners I think the important pieces that we could add to. That is that I'm. reported circle train so I use indigenous practice to convene and hold workshops and sessions, but really go back into practices that have been used over and over again, and we get to incorporate that into our work and I recently in two thousand eighteen with nominated as a roddenberry fellow for the work that we're doing with radical health. Congratulations on that that's pretty pretty impressive. And you know you gotta do things differently to get results, and so you know your story obviously highlights why you're so passionate about what you do, but what is it that got you into healthcare to begin with? The story is anyone ever grown up with very little. The number one objective and for me was I wanted to get out of the hood I wanted to make a lot of money I wanted a fancy apartment. All the things that we see on television and that was that was my number one goal and the way to do that. was I was GonNa Dancer, and so I'm going to help people but I also make sure that I had some. Truth behind that was that didn't really really work out for me, and that wasn't really the path that I was going to go on, but I still ended up in healthcare and ended up looking at help from different perspectives and getting to do that getting kind of the inner belly of the beast in my work with Pharma through my work in health, tack and so I. Guess I guess ultimately trying to what led me here today. That's awesome. You know what that grit that very strong desire to get out of the hood and just get a better life I mean. Hey, I grew up with not much either elise. Definitely been a motivating force in my life and everything that I do so I totally appreciate that. So now that you've been the business for quite some time, and and doing your own thing now. What's that hot topic that you want us to focus on today for leaders listening? The important thing and I I am shouting from the rooftops at every opportunity. That I get. We talk a lot about innovation. We're talking a lot about transforming how using all the new things but what we're really missing is like equity and equity in help and to day and America folks that are the most disproportionately affected are black and Brown people. People with disabilities are better in and. Help like right. Yeah! Health, as as we know, it is not equal, and we have people who are dying disproportionate rate where I live in the South Bronx our community number. I'm average. Five years sooner than our neighbors were less than a mile away on the upper east side, and this is happening across the country. Where are the code and the structures where we live are really impacting our ability, our our life, and how we live and I think that really needs to be at the top of all of these conversations in top of health. It's not enough. Enough to provide you know quality care or provide an invasion be talking about who is not being acknowledging who are the most impacted by what we're doing our work and what we're creating

"We don't just think about when you get sick. We're here for you. We think proactively what are the determinants of your health outcomes that we can predict now based on many factors. One of which is where you live we call that the zip code. So we know that in certain zip codes in which the infrastructure is not their meaning you don't have basic necess-. Cities in your community like grocery stores for good eating issues of crime that creates stress the inability to do and go out for recreation. And so we look comprehensively inside of our communities around the country. We also now have data that shows in populations different health outcomes. High blood pressure heart disease, asthma all these kinds of illnesses that over time will wear down the body. So we've been gearing programs that are specific to communities and one is the example, this you given about Baltimore. And by the way, it fits with where I was at today before I got here, which was our forty first diversity and inclusive conference and in healthcare specifically and healthcare Pacifica. So we know that there are nuances of the. The different ethnic groups that we take care of that we are working hard to better understand them. So we can meet people where they are. So this example, which you take what we've been doing in the Baltimore area and some of our other communities of color around the country. We know that there are different ways in which we can meet our members. And in this example, African American men and programs of getting them more care where they are. And so we have gone into barbershops and another community, we might do barber shops and churches, and we go into the trusted environments to talk about health and healthcare. And in some cases, we actually have the bobbers and the ministers in church settings who have great credibility in the communities, helping to promote health because you have to convince folks that they need to be men. Right. That's the deal. Yes. The deal. Yeah. This is not a mooring time to be in healthcare. In this economy knows. There's a crystal ball question to be asked. But but that would be almost too complicated. But but the question is what is the trajectory of your industry the hospital based healthcare industry in this economy? Are we going to see lower costs that you've been talking about? Are we going to see people being able to get more care as they ask these questions that you and I have talked about? Yes, I think that you're going to continue to see the healthcare industry. Volve? You're going to continue to see the hospitals plan a critical role, but not the central role is that a good thing. Absolutely. Because it's all about the right here in the right setting. And then you're going to see more organizations who truly will embrace the Kaiser Permanente model, and it won't be specifically the Kaiser Permanente model, but the idea that you investing upstream for health which speaks to early detection early diagnosis early treatment as. As opposed to waiting until something really affects the human body. You're going to see those changes happening in the industry last night. I will say is with now all of us. Learn more about artificial intelligence, and what kind of data can we now use in a very different way to begin to predict certain outcomes, you're going to see a shift fundamentally in how you proactively manage health upstream as opposed to reacting after the body gives a signal to an individual to seek help. But but we don't have I mean part of its human, right? But we in the United States don't have a history of great, foresight and investing upstream, right? That's I mean, we just don't look at infrastructure. Look in our politics, looking almost anything. Yeah. But, but I I would say if you look out of the Kaiser permanent population, and you also look at our model I can show you examples where a large. Segment of our population, very proactive and trying to manage their health. And so a lot of this is about the effective partnership and the ability to translate where the person can really understand it is in their best interest. And so there are a lot of people very interested in health, and what can I do to preserve my good health? And how can I help to manage my good health the challenge, of course, is there are so many things around us that gets in the way of.

"So for our professionals is a lot of stuff that goes into the calculation of health care costs Deif. Think it's well, let me ask the question different way. D- think it's solvable. This dilemma of coverage and care and cost. Absolutely. Do you really have? So have you called people in Washington? I think is a journey that we're on. But the idea that the healthcare industry is as fishing as it can be that it is as effective as it can be. And there aren't additional things that we can. And should not be doing an industry. I think anyone who's really been thinking about this. A lot would come in and say, no, they're more things that we can do to create more efficiencies any fact of nece in the healthcare industry. And by the way, there are many people working on that. I mean, obviously because Permanente has been working on it for years while we feel like we've made progress we also are still working on how to make healthcare more for table for millions of people who depend on Kaiser Permanente I wanna get to Kaiser and what you're doing in a minute. But I do have. I do have to ask a follow up question to that. Then which is why isn't it? Being done. Why isn't it changing is he Volve it? I mean, it you still have the center gravity of healthcare still the hospital SETI, I think that's starting to shift. And so you will start to see those changes over time. I believe play out in economics. I think as more people are paying out of pocket, they're asking the harder questions of the industry, and they're very appropriate questions. What are the turn? It is why am I taking this? How else can I get what I need without having to go into the most expensive setting. So the narrative is changing over time. And some of that is driven by the fact that people are paying more out of pocket, and rightfully so they're asking the right questions. I let me ask you one more questions in this threat. And then I'm going to move on. Are they asking the right questions not of their healthcare providers and their coverage providers, but of the politicians, I think they're asking the right questions of both actually. But I have to also say that, you know, until maybe the last ten years or so where you can feel the intensity of the questions and issues. I don't think that they're pointing to one versus the other. I think they're just broadly, San fix these problems. It is unacceptable that I'm paying more for coverage and care than I am my house note or I'm trying to feed my children. And so I don't they come in and say, I'm now pointing the finger at you. And I'm trying to figure out your problem. Or is it the government's problem? There's an whoever problem it is this is unacceptable to Kaiser permanent day then. And and what y'all are doing are a data guy from way way back your for Shaolin hospital was data analyst cousin Permanente does a lot of really localized coverage. You look at it by zip code, you have special project going and a lot of cities one. Of which is Baltimore I want you to tell me about what Kaiser permanent as doing in both more with barber shops and beauty salons. You know, we are working on this total health concept. Right. The industry is still a predominantly sick care model. Our model has always been how to prevent how to manage health. How to help people to live healthy lives so fast forward to the twenty first century, we describe that as total health..

Welcome to the program, sir. Thank you. Do. I have it. Right. That you wanted to work in hospitals, like not necessarily as a doctor but work in hospital since you were a kid. Yes. Actually, I wanted to be a dodger. Yeah. So originally I wanted to be a doctor, but I've always wanted to work in hospitals. And I've been very fortunate that in my career, I have had the privilege. Of running hospitals. Why why what is it about hospitals that that is attractive to you the whole mission of what a hospital does it's it's there to take care of people in need. And I think the thing that fascinates me still about hospitals that you have the whole continuum of life right in the four walls of hospital. You could go on one floor you see a family crime because they just brought a new baby in the world you go on another floor. You see a family crime because it's the end of the life of someone else. And so you have the whole continuum of life going on inside of the four walls of a hospital. The catch, of course, is that within those four walls also birth and death, and you've got to run a business, which is which is a complicating factor because it's really emotional. It's difficult, and it's complicated. Well, but when you look at the Evelyn of healthcare today, and specifically he look. At the approach that we take because Permanente the hospitals still plays a critical role, but it's not the central because now we're able to take care of many of the illnesses outside of the hospital setting. And so there are different models in different methods that are physicians in permanent medical groups, apply to the knees of millions of people. So you look at our capabilities that we have right now with Telehealth, for example, that allows a member to have a personal relationship with their physician, and they can do things via technology to take your health knees that in the past would have been done in a medical office, building setting and or and hospital setting. So it's evolved over the years, and I think is going to continue to evolve and in theory that makes it more simple and less costly for you as the provider, and it provides the patient. Access. I do wonder though, given where we are today with healthcare in the national debate Howard argue that people don't understand the healthcare economy in this country. I think people are learning more about it as the burden of the high cost of care is more more been passed onto people, and they are asking very different questions and appropriately. So it is very expensive. And has no question that the affordability challenges that we have in the industry, and therefore in the country is probably the biggest priority that we must continue to work on figure out how we address appropriately in this country. The two parts of the affordability that I think about all the time. They'll Ford ability of coverage and the affordability of care, those are two very different things helped me out then because what what's the difference? Well, you think about the affordability? Oh, covered a lot of that has to do with how much of the costs you shit. Shift to different funders. Right. So if the funder is the employer if the employer starts to shift more of the cost to the employee's. They generally ask for different kinds of products if you will which maze that I'm my find something that I can pay that's less expensive for the coverage. But then when I need care. And now the sudden discover what it means to have a five thousand dollar deductible. Then I can't afford to get the care. And then on the care side is very expensive. You have all the ingredients that goals into health care that includes specialty drugs that includes the cost of building hospitals, the benefits and wages that we have the pay appropriately..

"I think those opportunities steele here today it may not be in one company uh certainly i could have taken different paths as well but the idea that all doors are now closed and you simply have to hope that somebody opens those doors accelere yes there are challenges but i think there are still these types of opportunities that are out there all i was building on was in addition to that um you now have situations where someone can build their own company because is a different kind of infrastructure now this available namely technology that allows people to connect to a value proposition that others will be willing to purchase so um we still have challenges uh i would argue that we still don't have a complete level playing field uh there are still conflicting rules of engagement the rules of the road that we have today uh but there's also progress that we have made an i believe we will contain have progress as we go forward thinking about your organization and how you were leading it moving forward on what you're looking at i've heard you speak about the future of care is not in the hospital it's at the home how much investment has kaiser permanente made in that future post hospital marketplace um quite a bit not you know probably as we continue to learn more about what can be handled in the home uh we'll get better at that we do believe that the idea that everyone has to come in for all of their healthcare were demonstrating that that is not the only way to get an access healthcare in the twentyfirst century.

"Find a simpler path at pfizer rx pathways dot com won't long y you talked earlier about the rules of the road and the investments that kaiser permanente is made in the new rules valuebased care is this administration slowing down the transition to value these care with some of the moves recently to cancel bundled payment programs and another uncertainty or has it been annan factor for you uh for kaiser permanente with the uh different model that we have which is based on a capitalisation model uh is not affecting us to that degree however with with that said there is a reality that it has created some speed bumps with the progress has been made under the affordable care act but i also see the momentum that is happening in other areas in which i don't think that this will slow that down um you know because we still have millions of people who are getting care and coverage from other sources like employers and other programs and so they are still looking at and asking questions about the right way to finance and to evaluate uh how effective care being provided so i think uh that will continue one more question on the medicaid this emi medicare's innovation center there have been questions about where that he can see is is going that sub part of of cms do you think it should continue on the same path at a was under the obama administration should revise the direction cms message openly talked about changes that they might want to make under the trump administration.

"First and foremost uh historically you know i've heard this argument this is not a market where you get in it because you're gonna make a big profit and in obviously for kaiser permanente that's not our attention anyway so we're not in it to make a lot of money to your co you are a profitable organization to be clear we have to make a return to invest back into the fact that we're a comprehensive system so we have to continue to build hospitals at medical office buildings and we have over two hundred thousand employees and so we have to take care of retirement benefits and in our uh permanent a medical groups we have twenty three thousand physicians that we wanna make sure every day that when they come into kaiser permanente they have everything that they need to carry out the care for millions of people that's it um what really is the focus is how do you create the value proposition and so what we've seen in kaiser permanente aid now granite were totally integrated system where we have the care and coverage and we manage our patients through a permanent a medical group positions like we do everyone else and want you bill that relationship of trust you start to focus on prevention early detection early diagnoses early treatments you create a different paradigm in the care of those individuals versus just waiting until something goes wrong in then you end up with just they fix me system so it's a philosophy issue it's it's an also integrated delivery system where you're able to do that some of these others can't and i was at the advisory board for years and would hear from ceos who would say we want to be like kaiser and try and fail is it possible for other working as agents to replicate what you do today or is it just a historical work that you were able to do this in a different environment to set up that philosophy and it's hard in 2017 to make the shift in do it now.

"Wasn't more specific than that but you have any immediate reaction to that idea from the president uh not really because obviously that was just spoken about before walked in now that is there and it's ago here that said um you know kaiser permanente we provide kaiser permanente karen coverage in eight states and the district of columbia so figuring out what that might mean and then how we would we would respond to that is probably work that we would have to look at as we go forward i think the real focus though now is how do we deal with the here and now and there are some things that could be done and i'm hopeful that has bipartisan group who give back together and come up with some solutions per recommendations that were given to them in a consistent bipartisan way that will help to stabilise the affordable care act and rate under my left hand i have your recommendations your testimony to that committee what do you think is the most important fix is it the payment for the costsharing reduction at the csrc that's the csr is of fundamental and it needs to be solved very quickly and hopefully uh that's being prioritize um i also like uh as i said in a set of recommendations uh some consideration to the reinsurance issue which allows us to deal with the risk sharing across all of the different health plans and insurance companies uh and then i think the third area is the issue of state flexibility but with an attached to national guidelines or guard rails that protects the interests of the consumer my my test is always if our producer bridge it doesn't know the acronym there were using some listeners might not either so just to clarify the csr funding those are the obamacare payments to health insurers essentially who are caring for customers who might be more expensive and it's kind of subsidising enters to stay in the market is that if fair we have talk in the way to think about is is it's really for the uh.
